Ive got a Sonata 1 and i too noticed the dust coming in around the door but found you can seal those finger size gaps around the door with draft seal tape - it comes in a back colour so it blends in well with the case. I also used some black vinyl electrical insulation tape to seal the small gap whe...

this review usually opens people's eyes re multi fan set ups

sumarised, if you want low temps, multi fan set ups, including blow holes, might not be the way to go about it

as the subject says atm i have a labtec keyboard, which works no problem, but is a little on the noisy side ie the key strokes can anyone suggest a quiet keyboard, not something like you'd see in a court room, just a main-stream manufacturer that makes a low noise type keyboard preferably with multi...

it's really big, and the 12cm fan mounting option is awesome, but 12ch fans work best on caseflow rather than component cooling. They just don't move the air needed, and if they do, it's over a wider range (i.e. not specific enough). I don't know though, it might have uses, but i think when reviews...

no matter what software you use, they all use the same source of infomation

yes i've also read where the temp reading is actually a calculated result in abit boards

check for a bios update that may solve the problem for you

i hope i don't have the same problem with my new IC7-G is all i can say

a thing maybe a lot of people overlook is the combined weight of the sink and a fan
at their website the sink weighs 370g and their fan weighs another 270g, making it 640 total ..... the total weight's pretty heavy to be hanging off the standard 478 retainer i'd think

i think you'll get better performance and results if you position the fan so that it blows from the rear of the case towards the front, this way the air that has blown over the card will go upwards inside your case and get sucked out by your exhaust fan(s) at the top of your case
